Malisa Suchanya’s Black and White Pencil Portraits

graphite portrait

My small obsession this week is Malisa Suchanya's series of graphite portraits. Its cast of lovely ladies is diverse and expressive... plus, there's a handful of familiar faces in there. Suchanya says that she remains a lover for traditional art in a technological age, and her artwork proves it. When I first found her portraits, I had a hard time tearing my eyes away from all the immense graphite detail woven into the perfect textures for skin, hair, clothes, etc. She pays meticulously close attention to fine details, creating a super cool contrast between realistic faces and their more stylized surroundings. She sometimes posts progress photos on her Tumblr, so make sure to check that out too!

Funny, Inventive Doodles of an Investment Banker

matches skeleton bird doodle

Saeed Attari is a 36 year old investment banker from Bahrain and married with two children. Seems like a serious guy, but we know that doodle addicts come from all walks of life. In fact, Attari’s doodle muse is an imaginary pet named iBird! His doodles of iBird’s shenanigans are always interactive, incorporating mundane objects and contextualizing them into something exciting. These doodles look as simple as can be, but the ideas behind them pack a good punchline. Whether it’s food, phones, or his children’s toys, it seems like Attari can’t look at anything around his house without imagining what kind of trouble iBird would get into with it. It takes a good sense of humor to look at ordinary stuff lying around you on a daily basis and find a fresh way to have fun with it! Follow @ibird_art on instagram to keep an eye on iBird’s mischief.

NEWS: Our Epic Coloring Book was featured on the Dr OZ Show

In case you missed it, our Doodlers Anonymous Epic Coloring Book was on display on a short segment about adult coloring books on the Doctor Oz show yesterday. In the segment Doctor Oz talked about how adult coloring books are an excellent avenue for de-stressing.

That’s something we’ve been talking about since the release of our original adult coloring book over 5 years ago. It just feels so good to put color to paper and letting your imagination take over, zoning out, and seeing it fill in the page.

The Doodlers Anonymous Epic Coloring celebrates many styles of art from pure doodling, to refined and beautiful line drawings. A magical library, a lotus plant, a crowd of friendly commuters carrying umbrellas, intricate dream cities, cars, creatures, and cartoons-each illustration represents more than a stock pattern.

The immense variety found in the book appeals to both adults and kids, but also aspiring and seasoned artists. It provides you with a refined canvas to practice and improve your coloring skills. What would be your take on a particular art style? How would you tackle patterns versus a character?

Be sure to grab yourself a copy of the Doodlers Anonymous Epic Coloring Book at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or your local independent book store and send us your colored creations so we can share them with the world.

Beauty in the Unfinished

There’s something appealing about seeing the skeleton of a drawing, the bare bones version before it has been perfected. It looks like Marjolein Caljouw knows this, because she often takes photographs of her works in process and shows them side-by-side with the completed illustration. With pencil, ink, and paint, she depicts the female body in all its mystery and sensuality. The soft, organic features are charged with human intimacy that is easily palpable even in the rough sketches.

Ink Flowers Blossom Inside Old Books

antique floral doodle

One of my childhood friends always treated books in an oddly strict way. She would click her tongue and say, “You shouldn’t do that,” when she would see me dog ear pages, scribble notes in the margins, or even use a highlighter on a textbook. Actually, she still does. I think even someone as protective of books as her would admit that Emilie Ely’s floral sketches are a thing of beauty. @helloimemilie’s instagram is a romantic’s dream. Her gentle, intricate doodles find their way onto a myriad of objects, such as tables and leaves, covering them with the artist’s antique charm. My favorite are her old books, whose aged and worn pages flourish anew with elaborate blossoms. With elegant softness, her pen gives life and beauty to something old and tarnished.

Retro Sketchbook

So many eyes! I’m looking into a sketchbook and it is staring right back at me. Its pages are filled with Silvia Asunis’ exciting style that comes across to me as a lovechild of retro cartoons and classic tattoo art. Most of the sketches are only slightly longer than her pen, but every crisp line pops with attitude. The petite sizes and cutesy colors give a lighthearted edge to features that are sometimes downright gruesome. See more of Silvia’s work on her Tumblr! You will wish you also had four extra eyes to drink it all in.
